2015 Rex Healthcare Summerfest Series: North Carolina Symphony presents the Hot Sardines
Date: July 09, 2015
Program: A born-and-bred NYC actor meets a Parisian-born writer at an open jazz jam over a noodle shop in Manhattan, and from there, the Hot Sardines were born. Bandleader Evan “Bibs” Palazzo, lead singer Miz Elizabeth and the Sardine ensemble of powerhouse musicians — along with their very own tap dancer — play “hot jazz” as it was in the era when live music was king… with a little glamour, a little grit and a lot of passion. Giving a voice to the history-defining jazz of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, the Hot Sardines’ vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st century audiences.
The North Carolina Symphony will not be performing at this concert.
